Citizens for Access Rights (www.citizensforaccessrights.com) will host a fundraiser beginning at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 8 at The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. All proceeds of the event will go to protect public beach access rights for residents on the East End.
Citizens for Access Right (CFAR) is a group of East End residents who support open access to local beaches. In response to two lawsuits in which private individuals are claiming to own the ocean beach at Napeague, CfAR has come together to support the East Hampton Town Trustees, the East Hampton Town Board and any other governmental body willing to oppose the privatization of beaches.
CfAR is not affiliated with any political party and its objectives include the preservation of the right to enjoy local beaches and donating funds to the town trustees for stewardship of local beaches.
The fundraiser will feature music from Telly and Hopefully Unforgiven, The Realm and The Pandemics, a raffle, CfAR apparel and more. The cost will be $20 for CfAR members renewing at the door, $10 for current 2013 members and $25 for non-members
